Govt to hire experts to improve urban infra 24.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, June 23 After overlooking illegal construction and faulty development for decades, the Jammu and Kashmir Government has now decided to hire experts to correct and redevelop urban infrastructure facilities in the two capital cities. Though a senior official in the Urban Development Department said the task was challenging keeping in view the political interference which had come in the way of stopping illegal settlements and unplanned expansion of commercial spaces, the services of experts were being sought for micro-level planning. The suggestions will be sought to improve the delivery system before the implementation of ‘Master Plan 2032- Jammu and Srinagar’. Under the ambitious project, cities will be divided into small zones each having its separate plan so that there is improvement in the delivery of basic facilities. Experts are being hired in the fields of heritage, environment, transport, urban design, finance, tourism and disaster management. “If everything goes as ...

Garbage dumps along roads irk residents 21.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, June 18 The Municipal Corporation Bathinda (MCB) seems to have become complacent with the overall sanitation measures as heaps of garbage can be found dumped along roadsides in the city. Over-flowing bins placed on various roads are part of the routine view for residents. The absence of garbage containers in several localities has worsened the situation due to which garbage can be seen strewn across streets. Not only are these garbage dumps an eyesore, the foul smell emanating from them causes inconvenience for passersby. The city was the first in the state where a private company was roped in to collect and transport the garbage. However, the scheme seems to have failed in maintaining hygiene and measuring up to the expectations and satisfaction of residents here. JITF Urban Infrastructure Limited was assigned the job of the garbage collection in the city. Many complaints have poured in that garbage was not picked up every day by employees of the JITF, but all fell on deaf ...

In 10 years, Kerala Water Authority finishes 2 of 21 sewerage projects 19.6.2017
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government’s decision, way back in 2007, to pick Kerala Water Authority as the implementing agency of sewerage projects in urban areas has backfired badly. Virtually none of the Rs 581.77 crore allocated for sewerage works under Kerala Sustainable urban Development Project has been completed even after a decade. Of the total contracted amount of Rs 999.14 crore under ‘Part A- Urban Infrastructure Improvement’ of the ADB-funded project, Rs 581.77 crore (58 per cent) was set apart for rehabilitating and expanding sewerage networks in four Municipal Corporations (Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Kochi and Kozhikode) and also for the construction of Sewage Treatment Plants (STP). Out of 21 sewerage contracts, only two contracts relating to the construction of STP at Muttathara (Thiruvananthapuram) at the cost of Rs 42.70 crore and land filling work for STP at Mundanveli, West Kochi, at the cost of Rs 2.87 crore were completed. In the other 12 sewerage contracts (including three ...
